Rediscovering Eagles Bar

For some of us, we are on the look out for somewhere nice to chill the night with our friends after work or dinner; somewhere where we can relax and have a nice glass of drink.

I am sure that many of you have heard of and have been to the Eagles Bar at the ground floor of Marco Polo Hotel Davao.

While it has been around for a while and some of you may have visited it already, it is always nice to rediscover what it has to offer.

Recently, Eagles Bar has stepped up its game as it introduces its Safari Night, which will be every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Enjoy Marco Polo’s 24 classic cocktails — Alexander, Bellini, Bloody Mary, Caipirinha, Cosmopolitan, Cuba Libre, Daiquiri, Gin Fizz, Long Island Iced Tea, Mai Tai, Manhattan, Margarita, Martini, Mimosa, Mojito, Old Fashioned, Planter’s Punch, Screw Driver, Side Car, Tom Collins, Whiskey Sour, Piña Colada Cocktail, Singapore Sling, Kir Royale — while you chat with your friends under a safari-themed night.


During its launch, I was able to try the Mai Tai, Mojito, Old Fashion, Bloody Mary, and also the hotel’s signature drink, the Davao Punch. Probably too much alcohol for someone who does not drink often.

Each cocktail that I tried was satisfying, refreshing, and any would do to cap off the night.

Old Fashion

I really liked the Old Fashion.

Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary, which has Tobasco hot sauce, tomato juice, Worcestershire Sauce, pepper, and vodka, has an odd taste at the first sip. It was like tomato soup with vodka. Surprisingly, I enjoyed the drink and finished the whole glass. I just love that kick of spiciness from the Tobasco hot sauce.

Davao Punch

The Davao Punch was also a good drink, fruity with the right amount of alcohol.

In line with this launch, Marco Polo Davao also launched its Safari Night social media promotion where guests will upload a photo or video-clip on their Facebook or Instagram about Safari Nights at Eagles Bar.
